A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn about bodily systems and senses and how they react to stimuli such as bug bites and tasty treats. Basic biology exploration can become more detailed if kids use the text label option. Kids also can learn to use technology to record their observations and thoughts on each model. The Human Body by Tinybop is a creative and interactive way for kids to learn about the human body.
Ease of Play
On-screen models of the human body's systems include interactive play but no written or verbal directions (unless inserted by an adult with the recording tool). The icons are understandable but sparse. A text-label option increases learning with more information.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
The urogenital system is available as an in-app purchase and includes labels for "vagina" and "penis."

When parents create an account, the app asks for an email address "to let you know about new apps when they're available." Also, you can purchase the urogenital system for $0.99.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This series of interactive models is an up-close and relevant way for kids to learn the senses and systems of the body. Younger kids can simply use free play to see what happens when they tap, swipe, or move elements on the screen -- for example, eating food and brushing teeth. More advanced learners can read and learn formal names of body parts (such as "red blood cells" and "white blood cells") and record audio questions and observations. Kids who need more directed play may not feel comfortable and would benefit from a download of the free activity handbook. Beautiful models with creative interactivity help them learn about what's under the skin they're living in.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
